Inlay strips are an easy way to add a decorative feature to your woodworking project. Wood inlay strips are glued into a groove that is cut in the project part. You can cut the inlay groove with a router or table saw. In this video we show you how to use a table saw to cut the grooves for wood inlay strips. We also explain how to choose the right table saw blade for cutting inlay grooves. You should use a blade that features a tooth configuration that include some flat top grind on some of the teeth. Most combination blades will feature a mix of flat top and alternating top bevel (ATB) teeth. The goal is to create a groove with a flat bottom.
